The volunteer gardening group at Antrim Castle Gardens have been meeting regularly since last year and now with Spring here, there are lots of jobs to keep us busy. We're planning for the year and have lots of ideas and projects on the go. Many areas of the garden are still looking to be in a Winter slumber however there are some early perennials showing strong growth.

|This month we've been sowing seed in the greenhouse and hope to increase the plants we can grow from seed each year. We're growing some heritage vegetables, including purple tomatoes, and are excited about this.|
